The restaurant overall is good, food quality, service delivery. Although the restaurant owned by an Egyptian guy & his English wife, unless you have a strong customer personality as long as you are not an European his wife treats you from top to down grade people when you start to treat her equal to equal then she starts to respect...

We visited Luxor in late May for 3 weeks and ate at the Lantern most evenings. Immaculately clean with a good menu of simple home cooked food the Lantern is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Luxor. Debbie the owner is welcoming and fun and the restaurant is great value for money. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We were just glad we took the advice of some guys we met in our hotel. The restaurant was spotless, the service was attentive, the food was excellent English/Egyptian food. We also had a superb Yorkshire pudding on a Sunday :) and the last day I had an apricot taijin that was simply superb. We loved it and the owners... More

Our hotel suggested this restaurant as a good place to have dinner and it was good and tasty food. Service was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is that it is cash only -- so be prepared.
